Target, Verizon, Capital One, Walmart and other giant enterprises have been creating Dojos (immersive learning environments) to facilitate their DevOps adoption. Today, DevOps Dojos may be the best way to help your organization in its journey towards doing DevOps the right way. The DevOps Dojos we have created for our enterprise clients have enabled them to accelerate their software delivery. Based on these experiences, we would like to share how you can start a successful Dojo in 8 simple steps. These steps are industry, domain and technology agnostic.

If you are a leader, manager or engineer who is passionate about bringing the Dojo concept to your organization, this talk will give you the 8 steps you need to follow to design, build and grow your own DevOps Dojo.
